From the Annals of Bad Eating: Deep-Fried Coca-Cola If you happen to be in Raleigh this month, stop by the North Carolina State Fair for a Coca-Cola-infused funnel cake. Or not. Here's how it's made: Take funnel cake batter. Add Coke. Pour into deep fryer. Serve in Coca-Cola cup with coke syrup, powdered sugar and a cherry. Deep-fried Coke cake seems to be making the fair circuit this year. It was served up in Texas last month. As a health reporter, I'm interested to know how many people actually try it. Would you?
